Police probe rape case

Mere Naleba
Tuesday, June 17, 2014

A THREE-member police team visited the Namosi Joint Venture mining site yesterday afternoon to investigate reports of an alleged rape and assault case in the area.

Deputy Police commander southern SSP Selesitino Babakoro said in an interview that a team from Navua left the Navua Police Station around mid-day to tend to a verbal report after receiving a briefing on the alleged assault and rape case.

SSP Babakoro said he could not release any further information as yet because they were yet to receive the report from the investigation team.

"A team from Navua has gone up to Namosi. Once they return, I will be able to confirm and release more information," he said.

The team that visited the NJV site comprised a crime officer, the Navua station officer and a female corporal based at the Navua Police Station.
